The Western Style Cathouse. Near the business district and nestled in a poor corner of the shopping district, in the first bas.e.m.e.nt floor of a multi-business building. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. is lunch time, and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. is dinner time. During holidays and weekends, the business district becomes empty. Lunch is up to 1000 yen. You have your free choice of rice, bread and soup and it’s a good variety. On the signboard mounted on the store’s entrance is the image of a beckoning cat. The cat’s bell is the main feature of this mascot. My cat-loving grandpa left this small store to me who, if I had to say, liked dogs better. In other words, an average restaurant you can find anyway. …Ah, but there’s one thing that’s different from other places. Every Sat.u.r.day, the store has some very special guests come in, and it becomes a business day. Shouldn’t the store be closed? That’s right. That’s why it’s a special sale. Only on Sat.u.r.day, we welcome only these special customers, and because of that, superficially it’s a holiday. Even I don’t know when my grandpa started doing this. But, ‘Those on the Other Side’ call this place ‘The Other World Dining Hall’.
